I just had a new very small reddish egg show up yesterday and today. After washing it was more of a pink. I am trying to figure out who laid it. The pink color is in the shell itself but the bloom is almost a brick color. The size is just right for a new starting to lay duck. I haven't cracked one open yet but they candle fine with a normal look. I have a number of older Golden 300s and 1 Swedish and 1 Buff duck. I know how all of their eggs look. The 300s all lay off cream eggs except one who lays green. The Swedish has a normal cream egg with a dark coating. The Buff lays a white egg with the air sac on the pointy end. Never quite figured that out... anyway none of the older girls have ever laid anything like this reddish/pink one I got yesterday and today. It is true that not all of the older 300s are currently laying though due to molting and winter and such. I doubt the egg is from one of them though. I also have 4 young females with the parents (including the drake) being 300's from Metzer farms. I have had second generation 300s before and they all laid the same looking eggs as the ones from the hatchery. I also have 1 young Muscovy who is colored with all the colors of copper pennies. All of them are young but old enough to start laying. The new egg should be from one of these five young girls is my guess. So from what I have read Muscovies usually lay white, cream or green eggs. Anyone know of them laying pink eggs. Anyone here think its from one of the 300 second generation ducks? I don't have any other birds except geese who are locked up separate at night and it was laid in the pen during the night while they are locked up so no one else sneaked in and laid it. It has to be from a duck and most likely one of the young ones. Opinions?
